‘Avengers: Endgame’ Directors Shoot Down Popular ‘Spider-Man’ Runtime Theory

During an interview with Deco Drive, Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo debunked the popular theory regarding the runtime of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

When the official 129-minute runtime of Spider-Man: Far From Home was revealed, fans quickly realized the combined length of every feature film in Marvel Studios’ Infinity Saga was 3,000 minutes. This prompted some to theorize this combined runtime total was planned to give more emotional weight the popular “I love you 3,000” line from Avengers: Endgame. However, Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo debunked this Spider-Man runtime theory and confirmed it is merely a coincidence:

“We worked really hard to make sure. We’ve been planning that since Winter Soldier. No, I mean, that is absolutely coincidental. We’re not that smart.”

Anthony Russo added it was difficult enough to produce movies on the scale of Avengers: Endgame without trying to reach a specific runtime:

“It’s hard enough to make these movies. Trying to a hit a minute count like that seems off the mark.”

Avengers: Endgame will be available on home media formats in July and August while Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters next week.

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever.

Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, Numan Acar, J.B. Smoove, Oli Hill, Remy Hii, Marisa Tomei, Michael Keaton, Jon Favreau, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Spider-Man: Far From Home will be released in theaters on July 2, 2019.

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
